~::~ Starry Wishes ~::~

She wished upon a star surreal

A wish she thought was unreal

Beautiful life, a fairy tale

Even happy endings prevail

And that someday they’d walk down the aisle, as couple

 

It happened on a starry night

She walked home in the pale moonlight

She almost tripped upon a stone

And he helped lest she broke a bone

That was the day they first met, pure love at first sight

 

They kept meeting ‘neath cherry trees

They met even when the lakes freeze

Their fates tied by heavens above

It was meant to be, timeless love

Until on a doomed night he was called to the seas

 

Every day she stood wistfully

Reminiscing their moments fondly

The cherry trees, the lakes & moor

And now the future seems unsure

Yet she wished upon every star passionately
